LPR and ANPR are two different terms used to describe the hardware and software used for license plate recognition and capture using surveillance camera systems.
LPR means license plate recognition and is a term usually used to describe specialty CCTV cameras that are capable of dealing with the challenges associated with capturing license plates such as car speeds, fog, night vision, and reflective license plate material.

ANPR stands for automatic number plate recognition and is a term usually used in describing software that takes input from an LPR camera and recognizes the alpha numeric characters on a plate using software and is then able to take action on the license plate number such as store it to a database or match it up against database records.
